1145 Mission Street Site

A pit in the ground since 2006, when a two-story brick building on the eastern third of the 1145 Mission Street site was illegally demolished and approved plans to expand and convert the former building into live/work lofts and build new condos on the western two-thirds of the site were abandoned, plans for a new six-story building to rise across the parcel are back in play.

As proposed and recently granted an exemption from having to complete a lengthy environmental review, the latest set of plans for the Western SoMa development include 25 condos, 4,125 square feet of ground floor retail space and a basement garage for 12 cars, as first drafted by Levy Design Partners back in 2009:

And if approved by Planning, the Landmark Lofts development would likely take less than two years to complete, thanks to the aforementioned unpermitted demolition a decade ago.

    Are the illegal demolishers still involved and benefiting from this?

    Well, what the heck. Details do not have to be accurate, period. Media is all makeup. We were the first to move into Soma Grand in December 2007 and the building in that lot was still there. Then, within a very short time homeless entered it, started a fire and burned the place down. But 2006 simply has no part in its history except to highlight your short interest in accuracy,

    looks good, and could even go up on floors, do it in the excelsior as well, we need some decent housing designs out towards Silver and Geneva on Mission! Not just the stucco garbage, but a decent façade!

    I think the photo might show the wrong lot.
